BISMARCK, N.D. —  The North Dakota Board of Higher Education has named John Miller president at Williston State University.

Miller has been acting president at the school since June 2016, when Ray Nadolny abruptly walked away from the job after originally planning to stay through the 2017 school year.

Miller came to Williston State in 2015 as the school’s vice president of academic affairs. He had previously served as an instructional dean at Southern Idaho.

The board on Tuesday voted to appoint Miller rather than go through a traditional search process. University System Chancellor Mark Hagerott says Miller has proven himself under difficult financial circumstances and deserves the job.

The board directed Hagerott to lead the negotiations for Miller’s salary.
